Senior Iranian cleric blames earthquakes on promiscuous women

A senior Iranian cleric blames earthquakes on women who wear immodest clothing and behave promiscuously, the Associated Press reports.

"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes," Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi, Tehran's acting Friday prayer leader, was quoted by Iranian media as saying.

Oh Come onnnnnnnnnnn
tell me that you didn't laugh just at the title alone
I dare youuuuuuuuu


Hilarious man

But honestly this stood out EVEN more!

"There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam's moral codes."


as opposed to common sense?

This is not an insult to anyone, most know here that I am against organized religion and am an Agnostic, NOT to be confused with being an atheist.

But come on, so many things on so many levels is wrong with that statement, even if you were on his side.

And that comment rings so many memories back of earlier stories from religious scholars/leaders that i've heard in the past.

And that is not to generalize, many agnostics and atheists say stupid things too, but they generaly aren't tied to agnostism or atheism.

What a statement to say man
is it really 2010????

It's boggling to me how anyone would actually believe something like this.

Let's not point the finger at just Islam. What about those catholic priests that say that homosexuality causes earthquakes or that aboritions will bring about the apocalypse?

Religion in general tends to say some pretty ignorant and scary stuff.

Yeahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh man...Agnostic-theist here. In all honesty i think god if god is pissed at us then it sure as hell isn't because women are promiscuous. I can think of at least 5 things that going on right this moment that are worse than that.


[edit: fixed a sentence. Go one...wtf was i thinking?]

Once again, becoming an Iman doesn't make one smart.

This just cracked me up.

Of course, we're not supposed to make fun of Muslims but they seem to do it for us.

Whether it's the Ayatollah or Pat Robertson the B.S. remains the same! Aren't ALL earthquakes the result of a Pact with the Devil? The similarities between Fundy's of all religions should lead the intelligent to one inescapable conclusion.

The increase in earthquakes, would he be referring to the ones happening in young mens trousers??

Come on, is this guy for real, it gave me a good laugh anyway.

Not that i know of. It depends. Are you performing partial birth abortions or starving children and forcing them to join guerrilla factions?

That god probably isn't killing people over such trivial matters?

I agree with godless, it looks like Iran has its own Pat Robertson. This kind of stuff bothers me because I know there are followers out there who believe this stuff just like there are people here who believed Robertson's nonsense about Haiti- the people who believed Katrina was punishment of New Orleans and so on.

Maybe Mother Earth doesn't like it when women show more skin that she does

It is never the GOD that kills people it is the people that chose to be sheep

I'd say that would make you guilty. On biblical terms you could be called a false prophet. But god or not. To deceive people for political or personal gain is disgusting. Especially when it is the catalyst for the loss of human life.

People Kill people. Plain and simple. And some people try to use god to justify their killing of people. Just as they do with Politics (see josef stalin and adolf hitler) and will try to blame video games for school shootings. Which god i believe in is of no matter. I do not assume that my way is the correct way. Like i said, i am an agnostic theist.

I declare that the Volcanic activity in Iceland is the direct result of Internet pornography.

Cheating American spouses are also responsible for global warming.

Sexual deviance will bring about the end of the world in 2012.

Repent, change your ways now, and convert to Islam before it is to late for you all.
